features: pictures, advertisements, letters on policy,

your opinion on the advisability of a more frequent
publication. Reports of 1919-1920, read at the Octo-

medium for exchange of views, for the up-building

WHAT IS YOUR OPINION?
As president of the Associate Alumnae of Barnard College
I wish to call the attention of the alumnae to the following
letters on a vital question, one that the association must soon
decide and which is now under consideration by the Alumnae
Council. There is no question that whatever concerns the
welfare of the undergraduate and the college, as well as the
general field of higher education, is admittedly within the
scope of the activities of the association. The question is
whether the association shall concern itself with outside ac-
tivities in other fields, such as welfare work and social service.
Expressions of opinion from those interested will be heartily
welcomed, and may be sent to the editor of the Alumnae
Bulletin for publication or to the chairman of the Alumnae
Ruth E. Guernsey.
To the Editor of the Bulletin :
Dear Madame : — In these times when Reconstruction is the
watchword and everyone is on the alert for constructive
changes, the question as to the function of the alumnae body of
the college is very much in the foreground.
I think before one can discuss this question, one must realize
thoroughly that a successful college to-day cannot abstract
itself from its surroundings — set itself apart, so to speak, as
a definite unrelated concrete fact. We must admit its relation
to the living organism of which it is an integral part. It
throws out its tentacles into the community which in turn
leaves its stamp on the student body and on the teaching staff.
Shall the alumnae then, the mature and finished product of
the college, take no part in this constant ebb and flow? Shall
it limit its usefulness to the narrow field of college activities.
Ought we not as a body, take a greater share in community life?
I should like to state, right here, that the passive attitude of
the alumnae was one of the reasons that our endowment drive
last year did not meet with more spontaneous support. I do
not mean passive attitude on the part of the alumnae toward
the college, alone, but even more the passive attitude of the
alumnae to the communitv interests.
We must of course limit our activities, but we can take part
in the vital movements, and I feel that Barnard College, be-
cause of its strategical position in the heart of a big city, has
a problem and an opportunity peculiar to itself. We cannot
help being influenced by external events — we ought not neglect
our chance to influence our environment.
Hilda N. Strauss.
“THERE IS A COLLEGE ON BROADWAY”
BARNARD FROM STUDENTS HALL
March 12, 1921.
To the Editor of the Bulletin :
The question is often asked “What activities should the
alumnae association undertake ?” Should we devote our efforts
to the interests of Barnard or should we go outside to other
fields, too? There is a difference of opinion in the answers.
I wish to state a few reasons why. I believe it is best for the
Associate Alumnae of Barnard College to devote its energy
to the interests of Banard College activities in particular, and
to college activities in general.
The bond which binds Barnard women together is Barnard.
I doubt if any other bond could be found which is common to
us all and not enjoyed by any other group. The basis of our
organization is that we were graduated from Barnard College.
Suppose we were to undertake some non-Barnard work, would
we be able to keep the interest of all the Barnard women?
Would we be serving Barnard’s best interests if we entered
into some non-Barnard field which offended other Barnard
alumnae and kept them from returning to college or partici-
pating in our association? I believe that we should not be
serving Barnard in the best way possible if we decreased the
support of any of its alumnae. It is sometimes said that
Barnard is different — it is situated in a city. The college is
in New York City, but the members of the Associate Alumnae
are living in China, India, France, England, Japan, California,
Texas, etc. Their dues support our association. Why should
we spend them on anything but Barnard business? It is true
that our association is often asked to join with other clubs in
New York City in raising funds for X Y Z or endorsing
Law M or N, putting ourselves on record as opposed to Law
P or 0 . The other groups of college alumnae in the city
which are often called upon are the Vassar Club of New York,
the New York Bryn Mawr Club, the Smith College Club of
New York,- — these local clubs are not to be confused with the
alumnae associations of Vassar, Bryn Mawr and Smith. We
have no New York City Barnard Club and so the appeals to
Barnard women are made through our alumnae association.
The members of the Vassar Club of New York have two bonds
in common — the members are alumnae of Vassar and they live
in New York. The Associate Alumnae of Barnard College
has this bond — its members are alumnae of Barnard.
My second point is that there are many college interests to
which the Associate Alumnae of Barnard College should devote
its energy. Not only have we the intimate problems with
Barnard undergraduates, faculty and trustees, but we should
appreciate our relationship to other college groups. We should
take up work and keep our alumnae informed of the work with
the International Federation of University women, Association
of Collegiate Alumnae, Association of Alumnae Secretaries,
and similar organizations. At present I venture to say that
few Barnard women know very much about these organiza-
tions of which Barnard College alumnae are a part. We should
publish a quarterly instead of an annual or semi-annual bulletin
through which we could keep our alumnae better acquainted
with Barnard and the college world.
In closing I wish to add that I believe it broader for Barnard
women to take up non-Barnard activities through other or-
ganizations than the Associate Alumnae. We should join
with women from other colleges and with non-collegiate
women, and often with men, when we work for non-Barnard
programs. We should be narrow if we claimed all Barnard
women should work only together. Let Barnard women join
other groups and let their influence for the good be felt in
every community ! Let Barnard women unite in the A. A.
of B. C. for the interests of Barnard !
Edith Mulhall Achilles.
NOTICE OF TEAS
The alumnae are cordially and earnestly invited to the college
teas held every Wednesday afternoon from four to six in the
College Parlor, Students Hall.
THE ALUMNAE OFFICE
The alumnae office, Room 105. Students Hall is now open
from nine to five on week days, until one on Saturdays and
until 10 P.M. on Tuesday evenings. The telephone number
is Morningside 1400, exchange 417 and the executive secre-
tary. Anna Reilev ' 05 , is always glad to have the alumnae call
on the telephone or drop in to discuss the many aspects of the
work of the association.
CLASSES ARE ASKED TO SUGGEST NAMES TO
The Nominating Committee has felt for some time the need
of closer cooperation between the class organizations and the
Associate Alumnae. In order to further this cooperation a letter
has been written to each class secretary asking that the Exec-
utive Committee of the class send suggestions to the nominat-
ing committee for nominations for the next Board of Directors.
The names suggested by the different classes will be filed and
considered not only for nominations for the Board of Directors,
but for the different vacancies to be filled in the committees
Furthermore the committee hopes that the independent nom-
inations, so successfully employed last spring, will be continued
this year. By means of this practice the association can have
the benefit of a larger number of nominees than can be named
by the nominating committee which is limited, by the By-Laws
to twenty-five. 1 ■'

CONCERNING MME. CURIE
An appeal has been made to the Associate Alumnae of
Barnard College for the fund of $100,000 that is being raised
by the women of America to present to Mme. Curie a gram
of radium for experimental purposes. As the great achieve-
ments of Mme. Curie are well-known it seems unnecessary to
add anything to the appeal. Those interested may send their
contributions to the Mme. Curie Radium Fund, 106 East 52nd
Street, New York City.
Alumnae desiring a ticket for the meeting at Carnegie Halt
on May 18 at four o’clock to welcome Mme. Curie should
apply in person to the Executive Secretary, Students Hall, or
send her a stamped addressed envelope. The supply is lim-
SWIMMING CLASS FOR CHILDREN OF ALUMNAE
The Administration is considering the possibility of having
a swimming class for the children of alumnae on Saturday
mornings during the winter of 1921-1922. If any of the
alumnae would be interested, will they please communicate
with the Dean’s office, giving the ages and sex of the children
who would like to participate in the class?
THE ALUMNAE LUNCHEON, JANUARY 29
One hundred and sixty alumnae and guests enjoyed the
annual Alumnae Luncheon in the gymnasium of Students Hall
on Saturday, January 29. Holding it in the gymnasium was
an innovation, and from the comments heard a generally pleas-
ant one. There was indeed the greater informality the com-
mittee hoped for, and but for the presence of fur coats one
might have fancied one self at the Trustees’ Luncheon in June.
There were the same circles and semi-circles of chairs socially
grouping together two or three classes of “age-equals”, and
affording more of an opportunity to visit around with one’s
friends than the set tables of the lunchroom ; there was the
same group of faithfully attending Trustees and the Dean and
Prof, and Mrs. Brewster and faculty faithfuls, ensconced in
the centre of things in chairs somewhat more pretensious than
those of the rest of us. Toward the end all pulled their chairs
up toward the platform to be within hearing of the speakers.
Ruth Guernsey, ’14, Alumnae President, welcomed the alum-
nae to their most intimate and personal event of the year, and
acquainted the alumnae with alumnae doings. She then intro-
duced Virginia Gildersleeve, ’99, otherwise known as the Dean.
Miss Gildersleeve described this college year as “strenuous
but amiable”. Last year Barnard and other colleges, like the
rest of the world, felt inclined to be rather cross. The idea
current in some circles that Barnard is more radical and
bolshevist than other colleges was abundantly disproved when
the undergraduate president, returning from the Student
Government Conference, reported that all the delegates came
with similar feelings about their own colleges and particularly
about their sophomores! Miss Gildersleeve told of the hous-
ing difficulties at Barnard this fall which are described at
greater length in the report of the Alumnae Trustee. When
building conditions become “more stable and less scandalous”,
it is hoped a benefactor will arise who will build first the
Claremont and then the Broadway wing to Brooks Hall.
Miss Gildersleeve said that though we might each miss some
favorite member of the faculty of our own day, perhaps, she
felt that Barnard to-day continues to offer the finest faculty
of any of the women’s colleges, and urged the alumnae to
direct toward Barnard any students of superior merit who
might come to their notice. In closing the Dean mentioned
that her tenth year of service was drawing to a close, and
that she expected to take part of a sabbatical year for the first
time, sailing for Europe in March.
The Dean then introduced Dr. Caroline Spurgeon, Professor
of English Literature in the University of London, President
of the British Federation of University Women, and of the
International Federation of University Women. Professor
Spurgeon is the first woman exchange professor in the United
States. She has been giving a graduate course at Columbia
and some undergraduate courses at Barnard. Professor
Spurgeon gave a most interesting and illuminating analysis of
the difference between the American and the English college
The reunion committee headed by Hilda Newborg Strauss
was in charge of the luncheon.
DINNER AT THE HOTEL GOTHAM
Barnard Women who attended the dinner at the Hotel
Gotham on January 28 under the auspices of the International
Federation of University Women looked upon a “galaxy of
college presidents’’, heard some good speeches, caught a
glimpse of peace and a new world through the sympathy of
college women all over the world and, incidentally, were very
proud of the Dean who presided. Miss Gildersleeve intro-
duced Mrs. Catt who was followed by Miss Spurgeon. This
British woman presented a picture of the results of a sym-
pathetic attitude among the nations and the alternative of war
which left a silence when she sat down. Then came the
presidents: — McCracken of Vassar, Pendleton of Wellesley,
Thomas of Bryn Mawr, Wooley of Mt. Holyoke, Neilson of
Smith. Each debated the value of exchanging undergraduate
students and told what his or her institution was doing along
Between these talks, informal remarks were made from the
floor by an English girl now at Radcliffe, by a Philippino
woman, graduate of the ancient university at Manila, by a
Y. W. C. A. secretary attached to the University of Chile
and by others.
Alumnae Day is first of all an occasion for the alumnae to
renew their contacts and associations with College, to come
back to Barnard, meet the undergraduates, refresh their mem-
ories with what is permanent in college life and learn of the
student interests and activities that are new. It is a day when
college life is going on as usual and the alumnae are invited to
share it. Barnard adopted Columbia’s custom last year of
having Alumnae Day on February 12, which is a holiday for
most people but a business-as-usual day for the University.
We hope that this day will become the established one for
Barnard too, but this year the committee thought it best not
to choose it because it fell on a Saturday, just two weeks after
the alumnae luncheon, and also on a day when there would be
few, if any, undergraduates at college. For this particular
year, therefore, it was decided to celebrate Alumnae Day on a
Wednesday, that being the day that the undergraduates and
alumnae have tea together every week, and March 2 was chosen.
Having always in mind our aim to keep associations alive
and green between the alumnae and Barnard, the committee
was unusually fortunate in being able to lure back Professor
Robinson to talk in the theater to a group of alumnae, who
probably all had, some time or other in the last twenty years,
taken ‘‘four points’ of Robinson”, and were eager to come
back and have their brain cells stirred up again in the old
way. Some time or other too, in the college days of most
alumnae, had been Dr. Crampton’s course in zoology, the cause
of so many hours of hot discussion in the class studies, after
a particularly logical and peace of mind destroying lecture
on Evolution with a capital E. Dr. Crampton had been back
again for only a few days after a nine months trip in the
remote regions of Guam and Yap, luckily in time to come to
the theater too, and talk delightfully to his old students and
It was a family party throughout. After the addresses in
the theater the alumnae and undergraduates went over to
Students Hall for tea.
CLASS PRESIDENTS AND SECRETARIES MEET
A conference of class presidents and secretaries of the
classes after 1900 was held on April 5 under the auspices of
the Membership Committee.
The meeting was called for the purpose of considering
methods of increasing the membership of these classes in the
association and in the course of the discussion many inter-
esting questions of association policies were discussed such as :
The scope of the work of the association.
Size of the reinstatement fee for members who have been
Holding the alumnae luncheon one year at a hotel and one
year at College.
Having class dues include association dues.
Supplying to class presidents information of what the asso-
ciation is doing.
Sending out printed statements of the program of work of
The meeting was very interesting and the vote that was
taken on several of the questions was forwarded to the Board
of Directors for their consideration.
THE ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGIATE ALUMNAE
The Association of Collegiate Alumnae held its biennial con-
vention in Washington, D. C., March 29 to April 1. Mem-
bership in this society is open to all graduates of recognized
women’s colleges. The national dues are two dollars a year ;
one may affiliate with a local branch if one wishes or one
may be a “general” member participating- only in the na-
tional activities. To the convention each Branch may send
delegates according to the number of members it has ; there
are also delegates-at-large to represent the general members;
each college may send one representative, and each alumnae
association may send delegates. Each alumnae association is
allowed one delegate for each 100 paid up members it has, a
councillor for the first 500 members and another councillor
for 1000 additional members. The councillor acts as chair-
man of the delegation and is a member of the Council. At this
convention Barnard College was represented by Professor
Margaret Maltby. The Councillor for the Associate Alumnae,
Eleanor Osborne, was ill and Mrs. Paul Strong Achilles (Edith
Mulhall T4) attended the convention as acting councillor.
The association elected to membership the Southern Asso-
ciation of College Women and changed its name. The organi-
zation will hereafter be known as the American Association of
University Women. This is the American organization of col-
lege women which is federated with similar organizations in
other countries to form the International Federation of Uni-
The A. A. of U. W. will meet annually hereafter. The
newly elected President is Miss Ada Comstock, Dean of
CONFERENCE OF AFFILIATED ALUMNAE
During’ the convention of the A. C. A. one day is set aside
for conferences of different groups — Women Trustees, Deans
and Professors, Secondary School Principals, and Affiliated
The conference on affiliated alumnae associations was both
interesting and helpful. The question whether the alumnae
associations should undertake other than college interests was
discussed fully and the vote taken showed the consensus of
opinion was against the associations entering non-collegiate
fields. It appeared evident that alumnae associations need all
their time and energy to strengthen their college.
Suggestions for financing alumnae associations were given
by Smith, Vassar, Mt. Holyoke and Bryn Mawr. None of
these associations is financed by dues alone but by extra con-
tributions from their alumnae. Ninety-one per cent, of the
alumnae of Bryn Mawr belong to their alumnae association.
Smith, Vassar, Mt. Holyoke and Bryn Mawr have alumnae
publications — some quarterlies, some monthlies. Such publi-
cations keep the alumnae informed of college activities and
interested in alumnae work.
The next conference will be held at the A. A. of U. W.
Convention next year. The Barnard representative will act
BARNARD ALUMNAE LUNCH IN WASHINGTON
On Thursday, March 31, Barnard women in Washington
held an alumnae luncheon in the Y. W. C. A. rooms.
BARNARD OVERSEAS WORK CONTINUES
The fund given by the Barnard alumnae for Red Cross work
has been turned over for use in the devastated area of France
under the auspices of the French government. This work is
being supervised by Mrs. Van Allen Shields, (Rose Lathrop,
’98) and is being carried on in Marcoing and neighboring
Several alumnae are still abroad doing welfare work :
Marie Louise Fontaine, ’06, who has just completed her
work with the Rockefeller Foundation in the anti-tuberculosis
campaign, is now tutoring the children of American Army
officers in the Coblenz district.
Muriel Valentine, ’07, is working in the center at Anizy-le-
Chateau under the American Committee for Devastated France.
On February 25 a benefit bridge was given at the Hotel Plaza
STUDENTS HALL FROM THE GARDEN
BUILT BY MR. SCHIFF ON THE LAND GIVEN BY MRS. ANDERSON
to raise funds for her work. At this bridge a “Barnard room
was set aside and the tables in this room were taken by Muriel
Valentine’s college friends.
Dr. Ruth Guy, ’12, is doing research work in Glasgow,
Jessie Nottingham, ’10, had to give up her work in Poland
last August when the American Red Cross retired before the
advance of the Bolshevik army. After working at headquar-
ters in Paris she has returned to Warsaw and is again engaged
in the field work of the Red Cross.
Since the last Alumnae Bulletin was published Barnard has
lost four of her most valued friends. We announce with
deep regret the death of Mr. Frederic P>. Jennings, clerk of
the Board of Trustees and a founder of the college, Dr. L.
Herbert Alexander, instructor in Romance Languages, Mr.
Jacob H. Schiff and Mrs. A. A. Anderson.
Mr. Schiff will be remembered with gratitude not only as the
first treasurer of Barnard College and the generous donor
of Students Flail, but also as one who saw clearly the ideal of
Barnard as the college representing most accurately the dif-
ferent types of citizens which make up the Republic of the
Mrs. Anderson became trustee of the college in 1894 and
since then has been its devoted friend and greatest benefactor.
In 1897 Mrs. Anderson gave the college Milbank Hall and
six years later purchased the land south of Milbank to 116th
Street. The gift of this land on which Students and Brooks
Halls stand made possible the growth of Barnard and its giver
will be held in grateful memory by the alumnae.
REPORT OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE ASSOCIATE
ALUMNAE OF BARNARD COLLEGE 1919-1920
Your president has presided over one special meeting of
the Associate Alumnae, the annual luncheon, and all meetings
of the Board of Directors since her election to office in
November 1919. She has also attended some of the meetings
held by various committees.
Your president was present at the luncheon given to wel-
come Miss Spurgeon and Mrs. McLean of England when they
visited America during the winter of 1919-20. She had the
honor to represent the Barnard alumnae at the opening meeting
of the Mt. Holyoke Endowment Fund Campaign and at a
luncheon given by the Smith College Endowment Fund cam-
paign. She also presented the prize given each year by the
Barnard Alumnae Club of Mt. Vernon to the student of the Mt.
Vernon High School making the best extemporaneous speech.
Endowment Fund work absorbed much time throughout the
year. An intercollegiate committee of which Miss Gildersleeve
was chairman was formed with representatives from Smith,
Mt. Holyoke, Bryn Mawr and your president representing
Barnard. This committee met at various times to discuss en-
dowment fund campaigns. Your president visited the national
endowment fund headquarters of Smith, and Bryn Mawr and
the New York City headquarters of Mt. Holyoke.
The reports of the various committees of the alumnse will
tell of their work in detail. Your president desires to thank
officers, directors and committee members for their help and
cooperation ; in particular she wishes to express her gratitude
to the Clerk and the Executive Secretary who never failed in
any emergency to serve Barnard alumnse in the best way
Your president after a year in office begs to make the fol-
lowing suggestions :
1. That By-Law No. XI, Sect. I, be amended so that there
shall be five regular meetings of the Board of Directors. The
meeting in April at a time when activities are at their height
is too overcrowded to permit all reports to be read and dis-
cussed. Two regular meetings should be planned during
March and April so that reports crowded out of the first
meeting because of lack of time will be considered at the
second. Special meetings are not satisfactory as they are not
well attended and it is not fair for some committee reports to
be read at a special meeting instead of at the regular meeting
of the Board.
2. That the alumnae appoint a “House Committee’’ or a
committee with 'some other name whose function will be the
care and planning of the furniture in the Alumnae Room. It
is, suggested that this committee consists of the executive sec-
retary and four other members each appointed for four years —
but that the first appointment be for i, 2, 3, 4, years respect-
ively, so that one new member is appointed each year. The
function of this committee should be to plan for the buying of
new furniture and equipment for the alumnse office and to plan
for the renovating and renewing of the furniture now in our
possession. This committee should make recommendations to
the Finance Committee in regard to money needed for renew-
ing and replacing the contents of the Alumnse Room. At
present the officers of the association are elected for one year
only and so can not make plans for future recovering and
caring for the furniture.
3. That the Association raise funds to warrant engaging
an executive secretary full time for at least nine months of the
year. The work which should be done in order for the Asso-
ciate Alumnae of Barnard College to fulfill its function re-
quires the entire time of an executive secretary. Although
in theory the position is now a paid one in practice it is mostly
a volunteer one as the meager salary is sufficient for only a
small part of the time and thought the executive secretary
gives. It will soon be impossible to engage anyone for one-
quarter time when it is known that the work to be done requires
full time. A thorough examination of the financial situations
among other alumnae associations reveals the fact that none is
supported by dues alone, but that alumnae financially able con-
tribute to the support of the alumnae associations. It is earn-
estly recommended that $1000 be raised at once to supplement
the appropriation of the Associate Alumnae for an executive
4. That the Associate Alumnae of Barnard College make a
request to the Board of Trustees of the college for a second
alumnae trustee. It is suggested that the second trustee be
elected every four years, two years after the present trustee.
Thus a new alumnae trustee would be elected every two years
for a period of four years. When the first alumnae trustee
was appointed the graduates of the college numbered about
200, there are now over 2000 living Barnard graduates.
REPORT OF ALUMNAE TRUSTEE
Many interesting problems have presented themselves to the
Trustees during the past year. Foremost among the questions
of especial interest to us as alumnae are the creation of a
second Alumnae Trustee, voted at the December meeting and
since made possible by a chang'e in the charter, and the very
serious problem of the lack of proper housing facilities for
out-of-town students. This latter question has been compli-
cated by the emergency laws enforced during the past year
which prevent landlords from forcing out tenants at the ex-
piration of their leases. As a result of this situation, although
Columbia University rented to Barnard College for dormitorv
purposes one of their newly acquired apartment houses at 39
Claremont Avenue, known as John Jay Hall, we have obtained
possession of only five of the twenty-four apartments, whereas
thirteen leases expired last autumn and the rest should term-
inate this year. As chairman of the Committee on Buildings
and Grounds, your Alumnae Trustee has been asked to handle
this problem so that the students may be more comfortably
housed next year and every effort will be made to secure
adequate accommodations. When the students arrived for the
opening- of the college term last fall, instead of the pleasant
rooms which they had expected to find awaiting them, they
were ushered into a regular army barrack hurriedly equipped
in the gymnasium. Let it be said to the credit of every one
concerned, that no one complained except a very few faint
hearted, weak sisters, who returned to their homes and who
have probably not been missed — every one among the students
and the administrative staff cheerfully helped to make the best
of a disagreeable situation. The old cooperative apartments
on 1 1 6th Street were retained and filled to capacity, Brooks
Hall found it possible to crowd in about nine more girls, the
two rest rooms in Students Hall were made into dormitories
for four girls each, so that we have managed to live through
a happy and successful winter in spite of our difficulties, and
sociability flourished as never before, thanks to the splendid
cooperation of undergraduates, alumnae and administrative
staff. We wish to assure them all of our hearty appreciation
and thanks and to tell them that every possible effort will be
made to make dormitory life pleasanter next year.
Sara Straus Hess, Alumnae Trustee.
REPORT OF THE EXECUTIVE SECRETARY
After a year’s work in the office of the Associate Alumnae
the executive secretary recommends that the work of the
association be enlarged along three different fields.
1. Closer association with the undergraduates.
2. A more frequent alumnae publication.
3. Organization of the alumnae in the suburban towns.
The need of a closer contact with the student body was
seen by the Drive Committee during the winter of 1919-1920
and a great deal was done to bring about a closer association
between the undergraduates and the alumnae. This work has
been carried on by the John Jay and Brooks Hall Committees,
the Off Campus Committee, the Membership Committee and
the Employment Committee. The report of the work of these
committees appears elsewhere in this publication. The execu-
tive secretary also urges that more of the alumnae subscribe to
and read the undergraduate Bulletin and that they patronize
with greater generosity undergraduate activities.
A more frequent alumnae publication is needed not only to
give better news of the Barnard graduates, but also to place
the policies and program of the association more constantly
before its members. No very animated discussion can be
carried on through the columns of a publication that comes
out but once or twice a year. The chief interest that the
average alumna has in the association is her desire to support
a definite program of constructive work which it has endorsed.
It is therefore advisable that this program be discussed through
the columns of the alumnae publication as thoroughly as
The executive secretary is very anxious to have Barnard
clubs formed by the alumnae living outside of New York City.
There is no stronger basis for an alumnae club than the
geographical unit. Thanks to the efforts of Anna E. H.
Meyer, ’98, a geographical file of the alumnae has been made.
This file shows the increasing number of Barnard graduates
who are living in cities other than New York. Letters are
being written to different alumnae living out of town who
might be interested in forming a Barnard Club in the center
in which they live and any suggestions from the alumnae as to
forming these clubs will be most welcome.
Do not go off on any trip until you have come up to the
office and looked over the geographical file. Your route may
take you past the home of an old friend of undergraduate days
who would welcome some news of the college.
Anna C. Reiley, Executive Secretary.
REPORT OF THE JOHN JAY AND BROOKS HALL
COMMITTEE ON SOCIAL ACTIVITIES
The John Jay Committee on Social Activities was formed
last April, when the Dean and Board of Trustees entrusted
the social life of the new John Jay building to an alumnae
committee with the idea that the continued cooperation be-
tween alumnae and undergraduates would be of great value.
Owing to the enforced delay of the college in moving into
the John Jay building, the social committee did not function
until November. The committee then attended the opening of
the building and began regular meetings with Miss Abbott,
the director of this building, discussing social plans with her
and through her cooperating- with the student head of the
house in whatever way seemed best.
In December Miss Weeks, becoming impressed with the
value of alumnae and student cooperation, asked the John lav
committee to extend their field of activities to Brooks Hall.
So the John Jay committee of five members added two new
alumnae members, who had previously held executive positions
at Brooks Hall, and became the John Jay and Brooks Hall
Committee on Social Activities.
John Jay and Brooks Hall have both entertained the alumnae
committee at tea, and the following alumnae have generously
opened their homes to John Jay and Brooks Hall girls — Mrs.
Alfred Hess, 'oo, on Thanksgiving Day, Miss Edith Morgan,
T 7, on Christmas Day, and on February 17 Mrs. James Lees
Laidlaw, ’02, invited a group of John Jay and Brooks Hall girls
to meet a large number of artistic, literary and professional
guests, such as Miss Zona Gale. Mr. Edwin Markham, Mrs.
Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Miss Dorothy Gish and Mr. Seton-
Thompson. Late in March Mrs. George McAneny, ’99, is
inviting another group of dormitory girls to her home. On
the Sunday night before Christmas, the John Jay girls, in
collaboration with the alumnae committee, invited the Brooks
Hall girls to an evening Christmas party at college, which
proved to be a charming and unique entertainment. Early in
May the alumnae committee are planning a large evening party
at college to be given for all the John Jay and Brooks Hall
The plan of the committee is to develop as much as possible
intercourse between alumnae and students and also to bring
some of the life of our great city to the students. Our alumnae
have a unique opportunity for service to their college, as their
college is at their hand, and they alone, knowing the needs of
the college, can accomplish the most for it and the community.
Mabel Parsons, Chairman.
REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON SOCIAL
ACTIVITIES OF STUDENTS
LIVING OFF THE CAMPUS
The success of the John Jay-Brooks Hall Committee led to
the feeling that similar work might well be organized for the
students from out of town not living on the campus. Con-
sequently, the Alumnae Committee on Social Activities for the
Off-Campus Students, consisting of eight members, was ap-
pointed late in December.
The work of the committee began during the holidays. For
those girls whose homes were too far away to be reached,
teas were given at the homes of Miss Estelle O’Brien, T6,
Miss Amy Jennings, ’20, and Mrs. Dudley Miles, To. The
alumnae found it a great pleasure to meet the undergraduates
in their homes in a less formal way than is usual.
On February fourteenth all of the off-campus girls were in-
vited to meet the committee in the College Parlor. The mem-
bers of the John Jay committee were also present and ten of
the John Jay students assisted as hostesses. The alumnae
have shown a great interest in the activities of the committee.
One very delightful tea has been given by Mrs. James Lees
Laidlaw, and on March 21 Mrs. George McAneny is enter-
taining about fifty of the undergraduates and a number of
professional alumnae at her home. Each time different groups
from the dormitories and from the off-campus students are
asked so that all those who wish to know the alumnae may do
so. In May our final social event will take the form of a
general party arranged by the students under the guidance of
Mrs. Lowther and members from both of the alumnae social
committees for undergraduates. This will probably be home
talent and good fun.
This committee does not expect to confine itself to social
activities. It hopes to secure a room in Students Hall to be
used as an entertainment room by the off-campus girls. If
the girls are interested, the committee will be very glad to see
them form into a group similar to the dormitory groups. The
closer those students are to the college, the more they will get
from and give to the college. The alumnae hope to become
better acquainted with the girls from out of town for these
students have so much to bring to us from other parts of our
own and other countries.
There is also the feeling that Barnard has a rare opportunity
through its location and some of those most interested are
anxious to bring glimpses of the distinctive features of New
York to Barnard.
The committee feels that its work is just starting, and that
its report must, therefore, consist of hopes and suggestions.
Florence; Read Miles, Chairman .
REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON MEMBERSHIP
Since the opening of the current fiscal year the Membership
Committee has devoted itself chiefly to building up the mem-
bership of the Associate Alumnae and stimulating interest in
it. In this work it has been supported by several of the class
organizations and has received great assistance from the un-
tiring efforts of the Executive Secretary.
Campaigns undertaken by 1905, 1909 and 1910 have led to a
considerable number or reinstatements from those classes, and
have made themselves felt in others as well. 1920 has already
furnished a much larger proportion of numbers than is usual
with the younger classes. There have also been four new
associate members, 12 new life members, and 32 who have
begun life memberships on the installment plan. All these
movements are, of course, continuing, with fresh results from
week to week.
On March 7 the membership committee entertained the
senior class at a tea in the Conference Room. In spite of the
many rival demands upon their energies a large number of
seniors attended and listened to a brief address by Miss
Guernsey, setting forth the purpose of the Associate Alumnae
and its claims to the support of every loyal alumna.
On the evening of April 5 there will be a meeting of officers
of the classes from 1901 through 1920 to discuss further plans
for increasing the membership of the association. The com-
mittee will welcome any suggestions from alumnae that will
tend to assist its efforts to increase its usefulness.
Theodora Baldwin, Chairman.
REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON
Oct. 16, 1919 — Oct. 15, 1920.
On February 20 a vocational conference was held in the
College Parlor, at which Barnard graduates told of the work
they were doing, and gave the undergraduates detailed in-
formation as to the best way to fit themselv.es for similar lines
of work. The speakers included a gymnasium -director of the
Harlem YAV.C.A., an employment manager in a silk mill, a
commercial mathematician, a bacteriologist, a newspaper
worke_r, a social research worker, a teacher and an exponent
of scientific management as a business.
Further vocational information was given to the under-
graduates when Miss Emma Hirth, director of the Bureau of
Vocational Information spoke in college assembly to the juniors
and seniors on March 16 and to the freshmen and sophomores
on March 23. It was felt that most of the undergraduates
could be reached in this way. Miss Hirth said that the greatest
need for college women at the present time is in the professions
of teaching, medicine and nursing. One of the most pertinent
remarks was that the most important element for success in
any line is to have a long plan and not to consider work as a
depot on the road to matrimony, but to consider yourself as
a worker for the future.
[This year the vocational conference was held April 4. The
following alumnpe spoke: Helen Bradbeer, Elsa Becker, ’14;
Babette Deutsch, ’17; Mary Barber, T8 : Margery Eggleston,
To; Svea Nelson, ’15. Vera Klopman, Alice Judson, ’19; Helen
Hicks, ’20. — -Ed.]

The year as a whole showed an increase of io% in the calls
from employers and of 5% in the appointments, but in both
cases this increase represents mainly temporary and part-time
positions. During the last few months on the other hand,
and especially this Fall, there has been a slackening in the
demand for workers. This is especially marked in the better-
paid openings ; we have on our lists at present more candidates
for “really interesting” executive positions than we have been
able to place, and even in regard to the less important stenog-
rapher-secretarial calls there has been a considerable change
since August. Then we had a quantity of demands from
employers that we could not fill, because none of our candidates
wanted to work in the summer. In September, when the
applicants returned to town, the demand suddenly vanished.
Salaries have, of course, increased. Among the members of
the class of 1920 placed by this office the lowest salary for full
time work is $1000 and the highest, earned by an experienced
In view of the recent discussion of the teaching situation,
the plans of the class of 1920 may be of interest. Out of the
80% of the class whose plans we know, 30% are teaching or
preparing to teach, 50% are or will be in other occupations.
We regret to report that we still find ourselves less successful
in fitting the older alumnae into responsible positions than we
are in making the first contracts for the seniors.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE FINANCE COMMITTEE
OF THE ASSOCIATE ALUMNAE,
OCTOBER 30, 1920
The Finance Committee is pleased to report a great im-
provement in the resources of the General Fund. We have
now a balance of over $500.00 as against about $85.00 last
year. This is due to rigid pruning of budgets, and the care
exercised by officers and committees in administering their
Last fall in computing the assets of the General Fund, it
became at once obvious that dues of $1.00 from about 750
members, plus about $200.00 from interest of the Life Mem-
bership and the Dormitory Surplus funds would never cover a
budget of well over $1,000.00.
To prevent a recurrence of this difficulty a special meeting
of the Associate Alumnae was called in December and the dues
increased to $2.00 a year. With a normal interest and increase
in membership the association should have an adequate income
for the ensuing year. The income will not however be doubled,
because the amounts realized from the partial payment life
membership plan are transferred to capital account.
Last autumn the surplus in the hands of the War Service
Committee was at their recommendation turned over to the
Barnard Drive Committee. After this was exhausted the
college assumed the expenses of this committee.
Owing to extra expenses and rather small revenue from
dues during the war the association found itself without funds
to publish the usual five yearly statistical directory of alumme.
The general changes due to the war made it particularly neces-
sary that at least a directory of addresses should be printed,
and the college very generously assumed this burden for us.
This report you have doubtless all received. This is however
purely an Associate Alumnae function, and our part should be
definitely provided for.
For details of moneys in special funds, budgets and ex-
penditures you are referred to the Treasurer’s report.
Alte Stilweel Kervan, Chairman.
REPORT OF THE DRIVE COMMITTEE
The Drive Committee beg to report that the amount of
money which they have raised for the college is as follows :
General Endowment $108,697.00
Good Government Chair 10,877.00
The undergraduates from 1920-23 will go down as Founders
and the classes of 1900, 1918, and 1897 all gave as classes.
The class of 1915 is raising a Helen Hartley Jenkins Fund.
This sum has enabled the college to pay off its debts and
thereby secure the amounts of $200,000 and $100,000 promised
by the Rockefeller and Carnegie Foundations respectively,
which completed the long-sought-after $1,000,000 fund.
The committee found themselves hampered by certain pre-
vailing conditions at college which caused apathy among
alumnae and outsiders. These conditions have been reported
at length to the Board of Directors, who in turn have reported
them to the Dean. The committee hope that they have ac-
complished much for the college in arousing the interest of
alumnae and undergraduates and also that they have succeeded
in bringing the college somewhat before the public.
The committee have not yet met this fall and are therefore
unable to report any plans for the future.

Executive Secretary, Drive Committee.

REPORT OF THE ALUMNAE COOPERATIVE
October 23, 1920
The Alumnae Cooperative Dormitory Committee are pleased
to report that during the past year, October 1, 1919 — October
1, 1920, the dormitory has covered all expenses, including the
salary of a director for which the Trustees made themselves
responsible. The detailed treasurer’s account is attached to
this report. During the three summer months the apartments
were placed under the direction of a Mrs. Collins, who paid a
regular sum monthly for the cost of the apartments and fur-
niture and rented the rooms to summer school students and
transients under the name of the Alumnae Cooperative Dor-
During the past year there have been 44 girls in the Dormi-
tory. Miss Helen Abbott has been the very successful director
of the dormitory and the committee are much pleased that she
has been secured by the college for the head of the new John
On October 1 the leases for the cooperative dormitory ex-
pired and the apartments are now held by the college in the
present housing emergency. As the committee looks back over
the four years of the cooperative scheme, they feel that the
plan has worked most successfully in giving the students a
greater social responsibility as well as financial aid. The life
of the student has been a happy life in a homelike atniosphere.
It is seen by the treasurer’s report that the dormitory has paid
all running expenses and the committee is dissolving itself
with a small balance. The committee is much pleased that the
cooperative scheme is being carried on in John Jay Hall with
its larger field of activity and hopes that it will be a permanent
feature of Barnard dormitory life and will prove the same
benefit to the students, the college, and the community.
The alumnae are to have a connection with the new John
Jay building, which is to be partly cooperative and partly
non-cooperative, as the social life of the building has been
placed by the Dean and Trustees in the charge of an alumnae
committee. This committee, as appointed by the Board of
Directors last spring, is composed of three of the present Co-
operative Dormitory Committee and two of the Class of 1920
who lived at the Cooperative Dormitory in their senior year.
It is confidently believed that this continued cooperation be-
tween alumnae and undergraduates will be of great value.
The committee are recommending to the Board of Directors
that the sum in the treasury be spent as follows: $100.00 on
a Victrola for the John Jay building and the remainder on the
salary of a full time alumnae executive secretary.
Mabel Parsons, Chairman.
Dormitory Account 1919-1920
Deposits $ 200.00*
Board and Rooms 16,103.54
Balance $ 451.61
Against the above balance the following amount is payable :
Bills $ 130.00
Allowances to Landlord, according to Lease,
estimated at 150.00
Doctor, Nurse, Medical Supplies
Refunds for Christmas Vacation
Estimated Balance in Treasury $171.61
* The apparent discrepancy between Deposits Received and Deposits
Returned is due to the fact that some girls had their small accounts
charged to their deposits.
As a profit on the two years running expenses at 99 Claremont
Avenue, there is in addition in the Savings Bank $461.21 and interest.
ALUMNAE RAISE $1500 FOR EUROPEAN WORK
The Barnard Hoover Relief Committee, as part of the Wom-
en’s European Relief Council collected $1500 in answer to a
single post card appeal without any follow up. This appeal
went to Barnard graduates in New York City and vicinity
only. As a great many alumnae have given to this fund
through their school, church or club organization, this sum
does not represent the total amount given by Barnard women.
The members of the committee wish to thank the alumnae for
the support given them in this work.

ALUMNAE RAISE OVER $400 FOR COLLEGE
It will be a source of the greatest satisfaction to the alumnae,
as it has been to their representative on the College Women’s
Auxiliary of the College Settlement, to know of their generous
response to the recent appeal for the settlement. For the
second time Barnard holds the first or second place for the
amount subscribed among the fourteen college organizations
represented on the Auxiliary.
Ninety-four Barnard alumnae responded to the appeal with
subscriptions from one to twenty-five dollars, making a total
of $415 — exclusive of the $10 voted last fall toward the ex-
penses of the Auxiliary. It may be of interest to note that
subscriptions came from eight different states, as far west as
Washington and as far south as North Carolina — and from
the following classes :
No. of No. of
Although a date for responses was set on the appeal, it is
gratifying that subscriptions are still coming in. If any
alumnae are seized with an irresistible desire to send new or
belated contributions, they will be most gratefully received
The settlement still, as ever, is sadly in need of funds.
AdalinE C. Wheelock, Barnard Representative.
HELEN HARTLEY GEER MEMORIAL FUND
The classmates and other friends of Helen Hartley Jenkins
Geer, ’15, have completed the $5,000 Memorial Fund to estab-
lish a Foundership in her name. The income of this fund is
to be used for the general expenses of the college.
Helen Hartley Geer, “Bab”, as she is affectionately re-
membered by all her friends was so loyal and enthusiastic an
undergraduate and alumna of Barnard, that it is an appropriate
tribute to enroll her name among the Founders.
The gateway to Students Hall given by Mrs. Helen Hartley
Jenkins and Miss Grace Hartley Jenkins in memory of Helen
Hartley Jenkins Geer is now being built. It will be a beautiful
addition to the campus.

Starting the Day Right
The first thing one wants in the morning is the newspaper.
Take THE TRIBUNE, for instance :
To read the first pages is to know what the world and his wife are doing.
Then a few minutes spent on the editorial page to see what the reactions are to events
of the day. And while you are on this page don’t forget to look at Ding’s cartoon— it
would take pages to put in writing what Ding gets in any one of his cartoons.
Also on this page, three mornings a week, Heywood Broun writes in his own original
way about the latest books. And Broun’s dramatic criticisms are as closely followed
by the theatrical profession as they are by those of us who want to know about the
Opposite the editorial page will be found every morning, a page devoted largely to
society and the arts.
Following this page are two pages devoted to sporting news. Briggs with his human
interest cartoons and Grantland Rice with his column on sports — largely devoted to
golf and kindred sports — are the headliners on these pages. Besides Rice’s column you
will find full reports of golf tournaments and tennis matches and the other country club
sports as well as full account of the other sports.
The Tribune’s financial pages will be found of particular interest to the laymen as the
financial news is written in an easily understandable manner and the stock and bond
tables are the most complete published in any generally circulated newspaper.
After the business and real estate pages there comes the Tribune Shipping and Travel
Guide. In this Guide will be found listed practically all the passenger lines operating
out of American ports. Supplementing this is full information about the mails, arrival
of passenger steamers and other marine news.
The last page of the Tribune will be found of particular interest. It is devoted largely
to human interest stories and since, in addition, the Thornton W. Burgess Bedtime
Stories appear every morning, the children are always interested in this page.
No modern newspaper is complete without advertising. In 1920 the Tribune carried
the second greatest volume of department store advertising on weekdays among all
New York morning newspapers.
To have the New York Tribune with your breakfast
coffee every morning is to START THE DAY RIGHT.
